A Privelege to See

The population of the Native Hawaiian monk seal is in crisis. As a result, recovery of this endangered species is a high priority for NMFS. Without supportive action and intervention, the species will likely become extinct. Currently, the population of the Native Hawaiian monk seal is less than 1,100, with a declining rate of about 4% per year. This short video includes select interviews with members of the Native Hawaiian community on Kaua`i, speaking about their knowledge about the Hawaiian monk seal.
